Description by OLDIES.com:
This is an anthology of 20 papers that were presented at the Tenth Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture, held in June 1998, and co-sponsored by the State University of New York at Oneonta and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
Commencing with a perceptive speech by keynote speaker G. Edward White, this Symposium examined such topics as whether a city can support two - not just one - major league team, how television broadcasters and their ball clubs interrelate and how masculine dominance in baseball mainly curtailed female advancement in the game and business.
These essays, divided into sections titled "Baseball as a Business," "Baseball and Communication," "Baseball and Racial and Ethnic Perspectives," "Baseball and Gender Matters," "Baseball and Images" and "The ?Other' Leagues of Baseball," cut through the quick and easy judgments of the media and offer instead the longer, more informed view of scholars and researchers.
